. >> brit, critics suggest that for all the obama administration's talk these days about pivoting from the middle east to a new focus on asia, that what china sees is a president who desperately wants to stay out of all foreign entanglements, and therefore there is some weakness there, a vacuum that they want to fill. >> that's the thing you worry about with a range of these administration moves that this president, unlike many of his predecessors, does not see the united states as necessarily the great bulwark in the world order, and that he prefers a more passive role, leading from behind, if you will, and that that provides the temptations for regimes like the chinese, the iranians and others, that they now have more freedom of movement because the president of the united states is indisposed to take tough measures. and that, i think is kind of where we are. and there is a unity among these differing issues in differing places in the world in that they test the resolve of the obama administration which these countries and their leaders suspect is not strong. >> speaking of testing t
there will not be hearing this news until they wake up, probably. you know, we have heard president obama talking about how significant the figure nelson mandela was in his growth and life and development as political leader. it's true for so many of our leaders in washington. tom sherwood covers d.c. politics for us and -- >> and we are interrupting d.c. politics because rita joe lewis is on the phone. she's a candidate for mayor. in 1990, miss lewis was the tour director for a 12-day tour for mandela. miss lewis, can you here me? >> caller: yes, i can, tom. >> what was it like on that not victory tour, but educational tour. what did you feel when you took part in that historic moment? >> caller: i will tell you my heart is full. it was one of the most humbling experiences of my life. to be able to be with someone with the values mandela had about inclusion for all people. it was so inspirational. >> what cities did you go to? >> caller: i was able to work with the democracy of south africa. we were able to pick up mr. mandela and his family. bring them into new york. >> were you able to go to the dedicat
machine. obama care is the taco bell of democracy. >> why are you talking about taco bell. >> you are stuck in one place for white a -- a while. >> no one can get into the bathroom around here. and dana, how do they clean up this message? if you are jay carney, are you crying with your blankie in the corner begging for your mom to help you. >> well here with go with another week of these type of problems. but the communications problems are deeper, i think they are policy problems. but he is honest, but four years late. if he had said that -- mic, i'm sorry, that is my mic. emanuel and the president, if he had said that during the campaign and honest about the decision, given all of that, understanding it all, we still think it is worth it, that would have been a better way -- then you don't have to clean up a communication problem. what he said, though, is americans are expected to read the fine print. you know when you ged your credit card -- you get your credit card bill and there is the fine print and nobody reads it, it all goes in the trash can. apparently he thinks american
, president obama's talking about the law's benefits. highlighting one woman's story. >> she was one of the 3.1 million young people that this law helped cover because they could join their parents' plan. and that means that when she was diagnosed with a potentially deadly autoimmune disorder she got the care she needed. in the letter she wrote, i'm grateful because the affordable care act saved my life, saved my family from bankruptcy and gave me a future. >> this law is saving lives. how does the republican national committee counter that? quote, the white house is trying to woo young people, really? it's offensive that the democrats think that they can make things right with a social and some warm up talking points. i'll tell you what's offensive, when the republicans call the website president obama's katrina or that when obama care is terrorizing the country, or when a group backed by billionaires used a creepy uncle sam to try to scare young people not to get insurance. that was offensive, but helping millions of americans get insurance is working, and they can't handle it. joining me n
is focus on getting fathers involved in their children's lives. we could talk about saying president obama needs to speak out about this, but i think on a grassroots level, we need to have families, in tact fathers having communication with their sons. eed to tell them there's t to do another way. you know, obama could talk about this all he wants. i think we have to handle this on a family structure level. we have to stop being scared of our kids. i mean we have communities where kids tend to rule things. and that needs to change. we have to start taking control and being parents again. and that's not taking place. >> james, thank you very much for joining us. love the journal sentinel, been reading it for years. >> thank you. >>> and straight ahead. it isn't just the website, even if you get on the exchange and sign up for insurance, will you be able to use it? there are new fears tonight. that's next. the energy saved could light how many homes? 1 million? 2 million? 3 million? the answer is... 3 million homes. by 2030, investments in energefficiency could help americans save $300 billi
the total for the entire month of october. president obama talked up the law's benefits in washington today, and brushed aside rising disapproval in public polls. >> more people without insurance have gained insurance, more than three million young americans who've been able to stay on their parents' plan, the more than half a million americans and counting who are poised to get coverage starting on january 1, some for the very first time. and it is these numbers, not the ones in any poll, that will ultimately determine the fate of this law. >> woodruff: republicans said the new numbers on enrollment are cold comfort to millions who've had their coverage canceled or face higher premiums. 9-1-1 phone calls from sandy hook elementary school, during last year's mass shooting, were made public today. the seven recordings revealed police dispatchers in newtown, connecticut, urging callers to take cover, even as gunfire echoed. 20 children and six educators were shot to death by 20-year- old adam lanza. a judge ordered the audio material released under the state's freedom of information law. the
discussing with you a moment ago, i talked to four former aides to president obama. the white house isn't confirming this but all four of them said they expect that president obama will, in fact, attend that ceremony along with other world leaders. we saw president obama come into the briefing room as in the clip that you played tonight where he referred to nelson mandela as an inspiration, an example for him from the earliest phase of his political stirrings as a student at occidental college where he attended an anti-apartheid protest there. of course, nelson mandela is someone who was the first african-american or excuse me, the first african leader, black african leader of south africa which had been governed by a white government, president obama followed in that footstep as the first african-american president of the united states, and he said that he would spend the rest of his life trying to live up to and follow nelson mandela's example. what was so notable about nelson mandela was that he actually achieved in practice the promise that president obama had held out in 2004 at th

the president had something more to talk about other than obama care, he could talk about minimum wage. the biggest issue facing minimum wage workers is obama care. now in order to change focus from that, we're also now talking about minimum wage would make it harder for them to get a job in the first place. >> okay. joe? >> paul, i don't know if anybody at home is watching us on a $45,000 tv, but that is now an option. just in time for christmas, samsung has put out an 85-inch ultra high-end, ult ultra high-definition television controlled by voice and hand gestures. that's more than a college education -- a year of college education or a car or even many american's income. but if you're frugal, it's $5,000 off on amazon.com. >> all right. thanks, joe. if you have your own hit or miss, send it to us at jer@foxnews.com. that's it for this week's show. thanks to my panel and all of you for watching, i hope to see you right here next week. >>> a fox news alert, a dangerous weather blasting all over and welcome to america's news headquarters. we begin in milwaukee. ice and snow being blam
,000 simultaneous users and up to 800,000 visits a day. and all this hard work that president obama was talking about, it's starting to pay off. in nova loan, roughly 100,000 people enrolled in obama care through the federal exchange. it's a four-fold increase from the month of october. when all the bad-mouthing was going on. all this cocky talk going on out there about how it was going to fail. oh, but we had one last play left, right? the obama administration said they expect the enrollment to jump dramatically in the coming months. meanwhile, the state exchanges, they're doing even better. how about california alone? 80,000 people in california. now, this is a dirty word. if you connect it to the democrats. private health plan enrollments, 80,000 in the state of california? that's right. and 135,000 have signed up for medicaid. el with, how about new york? in this state, over 250,000 people have completed applications for obama care. over 40,000 people have enrolled in a private plan. and in the state of kentucky, where we were visiting not long ago, now the number is up to over 56,000 peopl
did start early for him, this influence, didn't it? >> it did. obama has talked many times about his first political acts, chris, were protests as anti-apartheid movement that was such a big movement in the united states. and, you know, a young obama having a political awakening found his activism in the movement sparked by the people in the united states and around the world who were using boycotts and such to fight south africa. >> and they met, as we said, and there's just that one picture i think it was snapped by his driver in 2005. he's a senator from illinois. look at that. >> it's an interesting back story, because i -- the man who took it david cats traveled around all the time with him, but he's a very good photographer and always kept a camera with him and would go to other things. new to take wla would became historic pictures. that photo you showed of a silhouetted obama, it was right next to his desk. >> you know, this photograph, we are told ended up on the desk both of president obama in the white house and of nelson mandela in his office back in south africa. we all
great. nelson mandela became one of the greatest. >> so we heard president obama talking to chris matthews about the importance with the connection with the men people. what was your take? >> i thought it was a fascinating interview. i like to hear the president when he expands on his terms on some level. but i'm going to be honest, i'm a big chris matthews fan. that was the softest voice i ever heard chris matthews speak in. you know, look, i imagine, these interviews when they are done on the other side the folks on the right want to hold the president accountable. the president made an illusion that many msnbc viewers are frustrated from the left. i would like an interview where it wasn't sitting down, letting the president say what he wants to say, but holding him accountable for the frustrations from the party who peel feels he hasn't done enough, whether it's on holding the banks account annual. things that he has the power to do. i would have liked to have seen more of that. >> let's play out a clip. you talk about how he was energized by the college audience he was in fron
was just calling let's talk about harry reid and barack obama and those people. we have been fighting for the scandals that obama has had. we are fighting with the lies that he has had. harry reid has lied. how do we deal with these people? truth and't see the you are just a straightfaced , it is going to take our country down. you can see with the health-care bill. it is a joke. take care. me ask you let before you go. there's a poll out on trust in government. it came out from gallup yesterday. the options were just about always/most of the time, only some of the time/never. i don't think obama is going to do anything. i think that's how he is. he is the downfall for our country. he is a liar. he has lied to the american people. if he can't find that, that he is a liar, then you don't understand life. that poll from gallup noting that 81% of folks answered that they feel like they can trust government only , justf the time and never 19% saying they can trust the government always or some of the time to do what is right. is up next from madison, virginia on our line for independents.
. >> everybody please have a seat. >> reporter: president obama will talk about the benefits of the affordable care act today at the white house and will highlight the improvements made to healthcare.gov. the troubled website that just underwent a major overhaul. >> they're really trying to say to the american people give us another chance, give the website another chance. >> reporter: 750,000 users logged on by early last night. about double the traffic for a typical monday. the white house promised the revamped website could handle 50,000 users at a time. but when it reached about 35,000, a new queueing system kicked in putting thousands of people including june miles-mays into a virtual waiting room. >> very frustrating. because i need insurance so badly and it seems like something in the system or something is not working. >> reporter: the white house says the system works. the website did not crash. >> that is why we built that queueing system. so that we would improve the experience of those users who visited the site over what they experienced back in october. >> reporter: visits to the
is this magical stuff coming from? obama walks around, president obama walks around talking about how, hey, we used to build the golden gate bridge and things like that. keeping in sight the fact that the total government did not build the golden gate bridge. where are our golden galt bri g bridges? about $1 billion in stimulus. we spent $50 million in road infrastructure, the stimulus, where did it go? nobody wants to answer the question because the thing is we spend money much worse than we did back in 1956. it guess to bloated contracts -- it goes to bloated contracts crew goes to politically connected developers, states that don't need the stuff. spending money on the federal level is an in addition way to deal with local and state and city roads. >> if you were to add it all up, let's say now -- being devil's advocate here, let's take the stimulus money, the shovel-ready project, a lot were infrastructure targeted at around $800 million and average it out around the last five years and throw in the $60 billion or so you're supposed to get from the oil countries -- a lot of taxes. they wer

. the president talked about obama-care, is his signature measure. be uh there's many other things we talk about every national election we have, these things come up. things like universal prek, unemployment benefits, ebbing panning those. >> expanding the social safety nets so people at the lower end have more, what about people at the top that have gotten much of the wealth? should we be taxing them more? >> that's a very important part. now if you look at estate taxes over the last ten years it has been on the decline. because the government has allowed wealthy government to pass more and more of their income on to their children and grandchildren. so that's a big issue. a lot of people in the top 10 of 1%, her not getting a paycheck, a lot of them are getting from investment returns. one thing about that is capitol gains taxes, taxed at a lower rate. and also if you look at wall street, and what's happening, in the dough jones and the s&p 500, you will see a lot of those returns are doing incredibly well. >> is there one thing that people at the middle income, or low income levels can do to
talking about obama care, but this week, he made a big pivot to economic issues talking about raising the minimum wage, extending unemployment benefits. when he did this a couple of years ago and assume d the self-proclaimed mantle of champion of the middle class, it helped him win re-election in 2012. do you think it can help democrats win in 2014? >> what he said there basically, if you don't like my plans for your agenda, give us your plans. i think this pivot to the economy is an attempt to change the subject from obama care, which is so dominating, the news of the past several months. and to rally his base, which is always what he does first. sometimes, that's all he's needed to do, but my sense is he's not going to be able to make this into a big national issue the party can win on because his credibility is so week. in that harvard poll, it was one of those open ended questions about what is your top priority. income inequality was way down the list and i think it is for a lot of people. now, the president of the bully pulpit can sometimes elevate an issue and make it a big iss
, welcome back to "fox news sunday." >> good morning. >> before we get to obama care, i want to talk to you about your trip to detroit this week where you helped open the first of what are going to be several republican outreach centers in inner cities. you also unveiled your plan for economic freedom zones in depressed areas. let's take a look at that plan. you would set a flat individual and corporate tax rate in those depressed areas of 5%. give parents more school choice and education tax credits. and loosen visa rules to encourage foreign sbe pentrepre to open businesses. senator, while critics say those are all good ideas, you've got to pour more government money into those inner cities if you're going to make a difference. >> well, chris, it hasn't worked. i mean, the president poured a trillion dollars into the nation's economy. when you divided it out it was about $400,000 per job. the problem with a government stimulus is you pick the winners and losers. with this stimulus that i'm talking about, a free market stimulus, you simply leave the money in the hands of those who earned i
're talking to their friends about obama care. >> word of mouth. >> and they mention to their neighbor hey, i just signed up for obama care. and that's how this starts to spread. >> that as how it works in movies sometimes. this thing's working. go see it. in this case, it's more important, life and death. >>> up next, president obama returns to a theme we'll probably hear often over the next three years of his presidency, economic justice and social justice. this is "hardball," the place for politics. we're going across america to let people try the deep sweep power brush by oral-b for the first time. wow. it's "wow," you know? wow. wow. that feels wow!

for the politics lead. first rule about re-branding obama care, you do not talk about obama care. today the white house launched a three-week blitz on the public's perception of the affordable care act. because, according to press secretary jay carney, obama care does not exist anymore. here's what he told cnn's jim acosta. >> jim, i, first of all, there's not an insurance policy called obama care. i think it's important to your viewers that they understand they're purchasing private insurance. >> still, the president didn't shy away from the term today when he was defending the law. >> that seems to be the only alternative that obama care's critics have is, let's just go back to the status quo because they sure haven't presented an alternative. >> so what's in a name? let's bring in our panel, editor of the "weekly standard," bill kristol, former arkansas senator and chairwoman of the it's my business coalition, blanche linco lincoln, and washington bureau che chief for "usa today" susan page. former president bill clinton is slapping down reports a few weeks ago he was trying to give hillary cl
, we could talk about saying president obama needs to speak out about this, but i think on a grass roots level, we need to have families and intact fathers having communications with their sons. they need to tell them not to do this. they need to tell them there's another way. you know, obama could talk about this all he wants. i think we have to handle this on the family structure level. we have to stop being scared of our kids. i mean, we have communities where kids tend to rule things. and that needs to change. we have to start taking control and being parents again. and that's not taking place. >> james, thank you very much for joining us. love the juournal sentinel. been reading it for years. thank you. >> thank you. >>> straight ahead, it isn't just the website. even if you get on the exchange to sign up for insurance, will you be able to use it? there are new fears tonight. that's next. there are seniors who have left hundreds of dollars of savings on the table by not choosing the right medicare d plan. no one could have left this much money here. whoo-hoo-hoo! yet many seni
into this a little bit talking about young people. what the obama care package is was intentionally designed to screw over young people. was it a mistake? it wasn't an accident. it was a package intentionally designed to screw over young people. he's spending all day now talking about young people. to your point, it's very true. we never tried at a federal level ending junk lawsuits. never tried having doctors and hospitals tell us what they are charging. never tried pooling people together to drive down costs and increase access. we have never tried it. we proposed it. they shut us out from the process. the democrats say either european health care or nothing. that's a false choice. most would vote him out of office. >> 50 -- >> go ahead. >> 52% of young people would recall the president based on this law. >> and 57% don't want obama care. now you look at another core constituency. we heard after the election about the latino vote in america. look at the latest poll out of gallup. the support of of the president has gone down 23% among hispanic voters. that's a huge discrepancy. from where he was a
. when is a administration came in, when obama talked in 2008 about fundamental transformation of the nation, they went after the major pillars of u.s. capitalism. they went after the health care sector, the financial sector, and they went after the energy sector. they really like this shows they don't care about the eagles, they only care about remaking the energy sector. we have seen so many green energy boondoggles that have cost the taxpayers billions of dollars, now we are going to see the lives of eagles caught up in the fundamental transition. stuart: if they were to say he cannot kill golden eagles, you have to shut windfarms down. so, the point is these sacrificed. charles: didn't we hear the argument a porcupine caribou, re-conception of certain salamanders. the polar bear, the woodpecker, they use all these things even with keystone people talk about certain species that were endangered. according to the wildlife society lecture 888 were killed. 573 birds were killed. this is mass killing of species of animals that supposedly to your point the obama crowd loved these
